Give it a bit more credit!!!

Despite the less than par review, I thought it'll be a nice place to bring my parents for dinner. 

I was prepared for the worse - I was expecting rude stuff, average food. But I was pleasant surprised!!!

First things first. I found the staff attentive, professional. It is almost as if they are trying to make up for the bad review online, I found them a tab trying too hard to please (and approaching dangerously on the brink of being intrusive). But once theyunderstand that we are pretty chill, they gave us the space we need to enjoy ourselves.

The food is pretty good. I LOVE the foie gras Xiao Long Pao. Absolutely heavenly. I can just come here and have three baskets of this stuff. I noticed that there are some comparison between foie gras Xiao long Pao at Sky on 57 and the truffle Xiao long Pao served by Ding Tai Fung. Well, foie gras gras and truffle are different, so any comparison between these are like comparing apples to oranges. I personally find that the foie gras version taste better. Foie gras complements the meat better whereas truffle seems to mask the taste of pork, and compete instead of compliment its taste. 

The rest of the food was alright. My mom had lobster Hokien noodle. It was rich, the broth was thick, and I thought it was pretty darn good value considering you get a whole lobster. It might not impress someone who reckons he or she can get Hokien noodle at Newton or Bedok for one tenth of the price, but darling, it's location location location. For the price you pay, you get lobster, which i think is a fair price to charge. Plus there ain't no white table cloth and you'll have to queue up in hot weather at Newton and Bedok.There is a price to pay for these things. 

I had the suckling pig. The meat was tender, very tender and juicy. The skin was crispy and it taste pretty good. I did think it was a tad oily. But I generally find French food a tad oily. My dad had the cod. I thought it was average, and again, a tad oily. 

I think this place deserves better rating. Come here for thebreathtaking view, enjoy the food and service, but be prepared to pay. Though, you can be pretty sure that you've just impressed your guest.

Ordinary 3-Tier Afternoon Tea Items

For full review and photos, please visit:
http://summerlovestoeat.blogspot.sg/2015/01/afternoon-tea-at-sky-57-10-bayfront.html


Overall the 3-tier items were mostly unremarkable and tasted very average, was expecting a better quality afternoon tea from Sky on 57... Only the starter, fried oyster tempura and the gula java macarons were really good.

Service was average as the staff were quite busy to juggle between guests who were still having lunch and guests having afternoon tea.. Hope they can improve the service for guests who were here for the high tea as well as the quality of the high tea items.

Afternoon Tea at Sky @ 57 came with "spring-cleaning"

On 20 Oct, we were at SKy @ 57 for an Afternoon Tea to celebrate a birthday. To our horror, while enjoying the tea, an uncle walked in with a vacuum cleaner and started to vacuum the floor in our presence. Behind us, the staff was busy pouring buckets of ice. In the midst of the din created, staffs started to gather at the Bar Counter to chit-chat. It was like their Tea Break, with no consideration for guests present. Then another lady cleaner came in and started wiping the chiller vents along the Bar Counter. Balls of dust fell to the floor and she continued sending balls of dust to the floor.

We decided to send an email to the restaurant. While we were leaving the restaurant, the Manager acknowledged our email and said he would respond to our email. After 9 days, there is still no reply to our email. Dun pay lip service if you are not sincere.  Furthermore, we were not there to witness the spring-cleaning of your restaurant. Maybe we should bring this to teh attention of NEA for the unhygiene.

don't bother unless u wanna pee On the 57th floor of MBS.

Couldn't believe it, when we reached the place , the woman handling the reception was unwelcoming , she looks like I owed her money back in Manila. She's probably the same woman handling reservation as well (see other reviews here). We got usher into a small room with about 20 tables. There are 3 rows with the 1st roll facing the harbour. The 3rd roll face the wall. We got the middle row (TQ Justin). Needless to say, the Ang moh get the better facing one although the were empty tables at the 1st row. I was there for 2 hours , it was empty the whole time. Actually the restaurant is pretty empty. (See pic). Food so so (see pics). How about some menu change? Price? We did $170 a person. No big deal. We wanted the $260 degu dinner but since we were allocated a lousy table, we ordered ala carte. U are essentially paying for the view, the rental JQ is paying to MBS n the lease MBS is paying the land owner. Summary: hv a better meal at other restaurant , go up Sky 57 for a drink . In that way, u get a better valuation buy for your dollar.

Lucky me

No food, no matter how great it taste, can make up for poor service. The response I got from the person at the other end of the call when I tried to make a reservation TOTALLY turned me off. Front liners should learn to be courteous. That call alone was enough to have me decide to spend my money somewhere else.
